Scrumptious food at decent prices

Breakfast? Excellent! Lots of choices, and all that we tried were delicious. Pancakes, eggs, biscuits, breakfast meats with choices of regular or turkey (including bologna). I've returned several times, and it's always consistently good. Recently I tried lunch and enjoyed the fried chicken. My... read more

It has the same daily specials on the menu forever.. It's hard to find a REAL Country Fried Steak with White Gravy---and they don't have it either! Their cobbler is terrible, can peaches and mush and it is on the menu several days. Fried Okra Spicey . Now for the good stuff--The best Day for Dessert is only Monday and... More

My office does breakfast here about once a quarter. The food is always good and the staff is very efficient. The menu based on standard southern fair (eggs, meats, potatoes, biscuits, pancakes) with a couple of healthy options thrown in.

I was in town for 2 weeks and ate there 4 times for dinner. Great meat+3 veggies (or substitute dessert for a veggie) or breakfast spot. Over the course of 2 weeks, our family ate the pot roast (just like dad makes), chicken n dressing (just like mom makes), and our favorite catfish dinner. Catfish wasn't "fishy" tasting and was...

If you like country cooking I would highly recommend this place they have also. Opened up another location. They have a great breakfast also. 1 location. On governors drive and one on south parkway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast at Blue Plate. Jordan's exceptional attentiveness and friendliness made the experience that much more special! The pancakes were delicious and I loved the cheesy browns and country steak. The place is full of regulars. It was quite a treat for us who are just passing through Huntsville to find such a welcoming authentic spot. Keep... More

Basic down home restaurant that is always crowed with a line to get a table for both breakfast or lunch (have never been for dinner). Nothing fancy but comfort food with pretty good service. Food is out quick. We've never been disappointed. Although this review says for Business, lots of regular folk visit as well.

When I am on that side of town, this is my premium place for lunch. Daily Entree and 2 or 3 vegetables. This place is always fast, hot, and good home cooking. Best thing is generally, thow the place is full, I can get a place at the counter for 1. I will be glad when they open the second... More

I almost don't want to tell anyone else about this place, they're already as busy as can be whenever we want to go! Hungry for home? Want comfort food but not mass produced macaroni and cheese? Get down to the Blue Plate Café, order the daily special with your choice of awesome side dishes (most of which are unusually healthy)... More
